FUTURE OF CO-LIVING SPACES | OUR CO-LIVING SPACES
We firmly believe that living in a big city will be an exciting and rewarding experience. Too often, however, it’s about frustration and loneliness. That’s why our goal is to provide flexible urban homes that make the most of smart design, cutting-edge technology and a vibrant community.
Startupbnb.com makes it possible to find an apartment and settle there as easily as a taxi. We keep the flexible lease agreement so you can take advantage of every opportunity. Our houses are designed with good taste and respect the environment. And most importantly, you can choose every day, whether you want to stay in your own bubble, wear your pajamas or spend intense moments with a community of similar ideas in unique and shared Co -living spaces.
The foundation is laid for coliving: this type of accommodation is not a trend or fad that is going to disappear in a few years. Between the plethora of providers currently offering coliving spaces in every corner of the globe, and the massive interest that residents from all professional backgrounds and lifestyles show, coliving has appeal and support that will help establish it as a unique but valuable form of accommodation. Residents may stay anywhere from a few days to a few months, but the concept of coliving has a permanence that will last for years to come.
How The Experts See It
According to Stonly Baptiste, an investor with a New York-based seed-stage venture firm Urban Us focused on addressing climate change through smarter cities: Co-living spaces will appeal to elderly Americans, who may be “looking to share the burden of aging together.
” According to Brad Hargreaves, founder at Common: “We found a group of property owners and investors who are interested in owning real estate but don’t want to deal with the management and think that this model of co-living is in huge demand.”
According to Andrew Till, a vice president of Simon Baron Development: “There is a very real shift occurring, and I think it has to do with different expectations for privacy and for sharing.”
According to Matt Mazzeo, a partner at venture firm Lowercase Capital and an investor in Common: “Home ownership as a life goal has dramatically shifted, and it’s not limited to millennials. I think it’s across society. If anything, the housing crisis sort of disavowed the fantasy that home ownership meant security…People just care about belonging.
